Dole wants Perot to quit race, endorse GOP
WASHINGTON (AP)—In a dra
matic bid to revive his White House
campaign, Bob Dole dispatched his top
aide Wednesday to urge Ross Perot to
quit the presidential race and endorse
the Republican ticket, GOP and Re
form Party sources said.
Dole campaign manager Scott Reed
made the urgent entreaty at an after
noon meeting with Perot in Dallas, ac
cording to three sources who spoke to
The Associated Press on condition of
The results of the session were not
immediately clear, though the Reform
Party source said in advance that it was
unlikely Perot would end his candi
Separately, Perot spokeswoman
Sharon Holman said she was not aware
of any Perot-Reed meeting but said
emphatically: “Mr. Perot has no inten

Whatever the outcome, the entreaty
was evidence of the deep frustration
within the Dole campaign as the 1996
campaign entered the final 12 days
with Clinton ahead by 15 points or
more in national polls and enjoying a
similarly lopsided advantage in state
by-state electoral vote counts.
The GOP sources said the decision
to make a pitch for Perot’s endorsement
grew out of internal discussions about
how to shake up the race in the closing
days. In the view of some Dole advis

Woman sends nnai message witn suiciae
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — For
years, Kathy Change tried to bring at
tention to her message of world peace
by dressing in tight T-shirts and thong
bikinis, waving flags and playing mu

No one seemed to listen.
On Tuesday the students couldn’t
help but notice.
On that day the 46-year-old Change
calmly walked to a large metallic peace
symbol in the heart of the campus,
doused herself with gasoline and set
herself on fire.
The suicide, carried out in front of
50 people, was meticulously planned
as a final, last-gasp attempt to draw
attention to her beliefs.
“My real intention is to spark a dis
cussion of how we can peacefully
transform our world,” Change wrote in
a statement she delivered to students
beforehand. “I offer myself as an alarm
against Armageddon and a torch for

“It’s a tragedy,” said Justin
Piergross, 22, as he sat a few feet from
the shiny peace sculpture. “I think a lot
of people just didn’t give her any re
spect because she was a bit different.’1
“What was she against? Every
thing,” said Kyle Bartlett, 24, a gradu
ate student from Little Rock, Ark. “De
struction of the rain forest. Government
with a capital G.”
Throughout the morning people
made their way across the College
Green and paused before a shrine ot
sunflowers, purple lilies, burning
candles and colored beads left at the
15-foot-high peace sign along with 8
balloon, which read: In memory of
one who lived and died in pain.”
Change was something of a mys
It wasn’t clear how she supported
herself or whether she had any family,
though in a radio interview she once
said that her father was an engineer and *
her grandfather a Harvard professor.
She had no connection to Pennsyl
vania. The extent of her education was
unknown. But Brendan McGeever, a
student who interviewed Change re
cently on his campus radio show, said:
“When you talked to her she was just
so articulate and normal. She could be
a professor, a grad student.”
Change, who changed her name
from Chang to reflect her commitment,
danced and displayed flags for 15 years
to promote her belief in a “Transfor
mation” — a crash of the world
economy that would force everyone to
come together to work out an answer.

Dole decided to go forward with the
entreaty despite Perot’s
unpredictability and recent bad blood
between the Dole and Perot camps, the

It was Dole’s campaign that insisted

from Perot and Reform Party running
mate Pat Gioate.
